Our Plans for Easter Weekend

I don’t think I’ve mentioned what this Easter weekend entails. It’s a strange one, but will be fun. My good friend from Chicago, Ellen, is getting married in Texas this Saturday (I know, the Saturday before Easter!) That’s the strange part of the weekend. M and I are going without the kids (that’s the fun part!) We’re leaving today to take the kids to gramma’s house and then we’re flying to Texas tomorrow morning. We’ll go to the rehearsal dinner on Friday night and the wedding on Saturday evening. In between, we’ll soak up the 75 degree sun :>

Gramma is excited to have the kids for the weekend and we’ll still make it for Easter dinner. It all works out fine. I must say that I was worried that we wouldn’t be able to swing it logistically – to get the kids to gramma’s, fly to Texas, and make it back for Easter dinner – but we will make it and it should be just fine.

Mackinaw will be going to gramma’s too – hopefully that goes well. She’s been having accidents in the house again, which is very frustrating. You see, we took down her “poop corral” and have been putting her on the “line” ( a strong line that runs from the roof of our house to a tree in the woods; she has a leash that attaches to that so that she can run around in the back yard.) Well, she gets so excited about all the sights and smells in the yard that she forgets to “do her thing” out back. We bring her back in the house after a half hour (or hour) and she often “does her thing” right in the house within 10 minutes of walking in the door from the outside! Arghhh!! Gramma has a plan to keep her in the laundry room (easy cleaning) and taking her outside a lot…and Uncle Dave has promised to take her on a morning run and evening run each day. Our fingers are crossed!

Have a happy Easter! I’ll blog when I get back.
